2011 in Review

Looking back on 2011.....
 We fostered three dogs for Pet Haven. Tug took 9 months to find his forever home but he finally did!!
 Angelica came to us from Red Lake Rosie's Rescue. She was adopted in about two weeks.
 Ash was also a RLRR dog. He was so energetic-the opposite of Angelica. He was adopted a couple of weeks ago Happy new lives to all. Looking forward to getting a new foster dog soon.
 In June we had a family reunion to celebrate Walker's graduation. It was fabulous to have everyone together.
 Walker graduated with honors and went on to study at the U of M. He has finished his first semester and is interested in continuing his studies in anthropology. He has a band and is writing lots of music.

 Rescue Buddy Boarding & Beyond had many guests through the year. We had 'old timers' like Toby and
 Mister visit often.
And some new tails too like Edna and Captain.

We are saddened by the passing of one of our guests, Jack, who crossed the rainbow bridge this past year. Jack, you were loved and are still missed every day.

As we reflect  on 2011 we are grateful for our family, friends and for all the furry kids that come to visit. Here's to some big changes in 2012! Stay tuned. Happy Peaceful New Year to all!

Simon Says.....

 Hey, let's play 'Simon Says'. I will be Simon of course.

Oh that sounds really fun!
 I am bored already.

Come on Buddy, it will be a blast!! Simon says, "time to play".

Good everyone. Way to try to join in Frannie. Buddy?????

 Let me know when Simon says it is time to eat.
 Simon says, "nap time".

 You all got it!

 Sorry Chloe, I said nap time. You are out. Where is that Buddy.

I am sure I heard you say, "time to eat a carrot". My bad. I'm out. Boo Hoo!!
All that playing director has made me really sleepy. Simon says, let's play more after lunch. ZZZZ

Merry Christmas!

 Merry Christmas to all from Rescue Buddy Boarding & Beyond! And many adventures in 2012!!
 We have quite a crew here for the holiday week. And ALL are rescue dogs. Chloe is our newest guest. She was adopted from the humane society. Lucky girl! She is so playful.

 And then there is our beauty Fran, a Pet Haven alum. She calmly keeps everyone in line without them really knowing she is the boss.
 Here is a photo I call 'oreo'. The black dog on the right is Fran's brother Scout. He is quite the smiler. Fran even smiled at Walker the other morning.

No Dave I did not forget Jakey, another Pet Haven alum. The puppy Chloe really tires him out. Jake was returned three times before his original foster adopted him forever.
The dogs love Walker. We had a calm Christmas eve here at home. Off to see family this afternoon. Thank you to all our families for letting us take care of your little furballs.

Gideon and Bishop-see you tomorrow! Chloe is waiting.
One last note. I wanted to say Merry Forever Home to our last foster dog, Asher. Your Christmases will be bright from now on buddy. Looking forward to our next foster dog in a couple of weeks. If anyone is interested in getting involved in rescue in the new year please email me at dogs@pethavenmn.org.
Have a lovely Christmas Day!

Calmness.....it happens

Calmness does happen here quite often. But it is something  most customers do not see when they pick up or drop off their furry family members. So here is a video to show how serene five dogs can be. Ho Ho Hum. This is especially for Simon's mom who probably wonders if he gets bowled over by the big guys.
